All your images are so clear, colorful, and detailed! What camera and lens do you use?

 
Camera Used
Believe it or not, I used a point and shoot for this shot: an Olympus FE-100 that is about 4 or 5 years old. :) It has a "Super Macro" feature and that's what I used to get this shot. I mostly use it and I also have a Canon 30D and with it I mainly use a 70-200mm IS. Thank you for your comment. :)
